14 new Einstein@Home pulsar discoveries in Fermi-LAT data

Congratulations to all Einstein@Home volunteers, whose computers have found 14 new pulsars in data from the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi gamma-ray satellite.  These new pulsars are listed on the FGRP discoveries webpage, along with the names of the volunteers whose computers identified the new systems with the highest significance.  In total, Einstein@Home has now found 39 new gamma-ray pulsars in Fermi LAT data.

We are preparing a journal publication about these new pulsars, and will post a link to it in the science/publications area when it is finished.  Meanwhile, the search for new pulsars continues!

Is there a certificate or something like that when you find something? I'd like to put in in my school to encurage others (and to brag with it at my parents in law).

There indeed are certificates of discovery everyone whose computer finds something new will receive. You can find some in a new gallery of our lucky volunteers.
